Subject: WhatÂs the rush?
Subject: The mighty earthquake could not stop the people
Subject: But note the third film on that subject
Obviously shot by the same person as "TripDown1905", it retraces the same exact slow route down Market St. up to the Ferry Bldg. Amazing stuff and there is hardly any picture roll. That film also has the camera travel down a couple more ghostly streets.
Subject: Film preservation -- A MUST!!!
Absolutely astounding footage!! If we remember September 11 and recall how life "must go on", we can truly understand the traffic (both foot and vehicle) seen in this film with the horror of the earthquake in the background. This short film shows (at least to me) the resiliency of the human spirit. A fine, fine, piece of history as it happened.
Subject: Strangely funny
Although I am -- sometimes -- antiquarian enough to feel a certain nostalgic tweak seeing men and women so "prim and proper," watching it makes me glad that these days we can be so much looser and flexible in our attire.
Subject: Amazing footage
